If you're looking for a nice bungalow hotel, this is it. The whole hotel territory is covered with Wi-Fi, but connection is awful sometimes. There are insects in the rooms, and in bungalows you don't have a ceiling in the bathroom. There is no english-speaking staff from 22:00 to 10:00 o'clock. But except of this the hotel is really nice, the beach is sandy and pleasant, the water is very clear.

Room Tip: wi-fi password is their phone number

A late review, but had to put something in because of the incredible experience my husband and I had here. It was one of my favorite places in Thailand. (which is a big statement obviously). We easily walked along the beach from the ferry to Dakanda and were in shock to see how beautiful this place was. The rooms were huge with lovely outdoor, enclosed showers. There was an inviting infinity pool overlooking the beach and ocean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It is a short 5 minute walk into Thong Sala proper. It felt like we had the entire beach to ourself. There is a restaurant on site with great food and fun drinks. They can arrange to rent bikes or jeeps for the day. Taxis are cheap and about 15mins to Had Rinn if you are going for the full moon party. I would and have highly recommended Dakanda to anyone!!

Room Tip: You can pay a bit extra and have your cabin right on the beach, but you wont spend much time inside them!

I really enjoyed this place because the rooms were very nice and clean and the landscape was really pretty. They also have an outdoor pool which is beautiful.

Tips:
- Make sure to arrange and confirm your pickup from the ferry terminal before hand or you might be left paying to get there

- Eat somewhere else. They repeatedly got our orders wrong and tried to make us pay for other peoples items (apparently they people staying in our room before forgot to pay for a few things!). Also, it's pretty expensive compared to other places.

Room Tip: Do not get the two bungalos that are close to the hotel section of the resort, people on the balconies can see in to your bathroom!

We stayed at this beautiful resort for 5 nights over the New Year's Eve period. I must say it completely exceeded any of our expectations.
The resort is absolutely beautiful with it's own private beach and outdoor restaurant, which dished up some delicious meals.
There is also a small pool, it's clean and quite lavish looking as it overlooks the beach.
The bungalows are simple yet very Thai inspired. There were 3 of us staying in the one bungalow so they provided a matress, which made the stay all the more comfortable. A lovely feature of the bungalow is the outdoor bathroom. It was so nice to bathe under the stars, truly a unique experience!
The place is about a 15-20 min drive to Haad Rin Beach, where all the parties are. This suited us fine as it was nice to get away from the mayhem and escape to the tranquility of the resort. It only cost 100 baht to get to the party anyway. The resort is about a 5 minute walk to all the shops and restaurants of Thongsala and Thongsala pier , so I thought it was very well located.

I think the beauty of this place really lies in the wonderful staff who run it. Honestly, they made our stay so comfortable and fun and were so helpful and friendly. They were like family once we left. It was sad to farewell them all but I'm sure that we will see them again soon.
I know if I ever go back to Koh Phangan. This is where I will stay :) You get much more for what you pay so I highly recommend it!

Room Tip: Pool view, beach bungalow! Dont book anything else!

This place was a great find! Super cheap around $34 per night during high season, huge rooms, huge bed, air conditioner, beach towels, bottled water, in room safe, great restaurant with breakfast included, on the beach, close to everything, great staff! I would definitely come here again!

The grounds here were amazing too. Very jungle like plus on the beach.

Juju was a great guy, very friendly and great service from him and the rest of the staff. The staff was out on the beach cleaning the seaweed 2x per day. The beach on Baan Tai was not the greatest but the beach in front of this resort was the cleanest by far.

Try the mango shake here, it was the best shake I had in all of Thailand!

Great job Dakanda, don't change anything!

Room Tip: Rent a scooter to travel around and go exploring
